Gallery Conversation » The Beyond Artist, Dylan Gebbia-Richards
Join artist Dylan Gebbia-Richards from the temporary exhibition The Beyond: Georgia O’Keeffe & Contemporary Art, for a conversation on his artwork included in the exhibition. Richards’s work is a cacophony of color. His colorful, large-scale, sprayed-wax installations envelop the viewer in a kaleidoscopic visual experience. Built up of many layers of colorful paraffin wax and resin, the irregular textures protrude from the wall and intrude upon the real space of the gallery. Richards’s own interest in meteorology and the landscape find expression here: some passages appear to reference the astounding color of the twilight sky, while others feel like the rolling outcropping of a Technicolor mountain range. But as loud as the colors may be, the semi-translucence of the material lends a density to the work, which provides an unexpected subtlety to the viewing experience.
Space is limited; please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early.
The Gallery Conversation is free, but a ticket to the exhibition is required: $10 ($8/Members), available at Guest Services or https://crystalbridges.org/okeeffe
